Tottenham could target Borussia Dortmund winger Christian Pulisic this summer, according to the Telegraph.

After signing a new five-year contract with the club, manager Mauricio Pochettino is expected to be handed increased transfer funds this summer in order to overhaul his squad.

The likes of Toby Alderweireld, Mousa Dembele and Danny Rose are expected to leave, while Spurs are reportedly targeting Anthony Martial, Wilfried Zaha and Ryan Sessegnon.

However, a move for Sessegnon has now been deemed unlikely after Fulham achieved promotion to the Premier League via the Championship play-offs.

The Telegraph claims Sessegnon will almost certainly now stay at Fulham for at least another year.

As a result, Spurs could apparently turn their attentions to Pulisic.

Pochettino is said to be a long-term admirer of the 19-year-old USA international, who scored five goals in 42 appearances across all competitions in 2017-18.

The teenager was impressive against Tottenham at Wembley earlier in the season despite Dortmund falling to a 3-1 defeat in the Champions League group stages.

Pulisic has been linked with Manchester United in the past – Spurs would be wise to steal a march on his other suitors by making a move for him as soon as possible.
